OPEC, non-OPEC fail to reach deal on output freeze – sources

DOHA, April 17 (Reuters) – OPEC and non-OPEC producers on Sunday failed to reach a deal to freeze oil output, three oil industry sources told Reuters.

Sources said OPEC producers had told non-OPEC members they needed first to reach a deal within OPEC, possibly at a June meeting. After that, the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries will be able to invite other producers to join. (Reporting by Reuters OPEC team; writing by Dmitry Zhdannikov; Editing by Dale Hudson)
